to see you again. irk >>> yee knew these companies could not bring down taxes. it turns out that we were afraid that these bonds were bringing the whole world down and we should have been buying them. the europeans offered sensible plans and responsible governments stepped in. if you had been able to borrow a ton of money to buy them it would have worked. it may have been the single best investment of the 21st century. we are gripped by a similar hysteria about our own country. companies perceived to be the biggest loser. but it turned out to be an amazing trade. the stock traveled to $7.72. >> i can tell from the trading in the name it is not going to happen just yet. there are sellers everywhere. the only thing they have going for them is the debt. we know that when the cliff jump price jumps, well, i say the worst has been prepared for it. and key bank may be the worst of the bunch. it has been a terrible investment up until things turned. and then we will look back and say what were we thinking. why didn't we bid 7 and buy key bank instead of selling it like everybody else? stick wit

. you can see how quickly that can be done. so last year state senator leland yee whose district includes san francisco introduced legislation that would get around or sort of close this loophole and expand our semi-automatic weapon ban to include guns like this. that failed in the appropriations committee. on friday, when these shootings happened, leeland lee said we'll reintroduce the legislation as soon as we reconvene in january of 2013. >> this is a lot of political talk but what are the chances that this actually passes? >> actually good. it was fleshed out very well in the last session. the democrats are vastly supermajority as we know in the assembly and in the senate. we have a governor who is very sympathetic to this. the political will is there and not only that, but i think state legislatures all over the state will be going in this direction. everyone is looking at the obama administration and dianne feinstein but the truth is right here in california, in a democratic-controlled state legislature throughout the country in colorado, illinois, connecticut, and in massa
